NCIS season 18: Maria Bello talks Mark Harmon; 400th episode contest

NCISAs we prepare for the 400th episode of NCIS airing on CBS this coming Tuesday, there are a couple of fun things worth talking about!

Let’s kick things off here with Maria Bello, given that there are so many Sloane – Gibbs fans out there. Leading up to the show’s premiere earlier this week, Bello posted an image of herself alongside Mark Harmon (really, the same photo that we’ve got above). In the caption, she notes that she “loves this guy so much” in relation to Harmon, and that just brings a smile to our face.

As many of you probably know at this point, Maria is poised to leave after eight episodes this season — there aren’t a lot of finer details related to her exit right now, but signs point to her just wanting to pursue some other things. It’s just nice to see that even as she prepares for her exit, she has nice things to say about the co-star she’s spent so much time with over the past few years.
